On December 23, 2007 Greg asked me to marry him. We were at my parents house celebrating Christmas and opening presents. The last present I opened was from Greg. It was a pretty good sized box and it was light, so I was curious. I opened the box and within was another box, also light. I opened that box and then there was ANOTHER box! The third box had a bow on it, I took off the bow, opened it up expecting to see a ring box, but to my surprise there was a AA battery!! I was like... what?!? and I looked up at Greg (because I was sitting on the floor and he was standing next to me) and he was getting down on one knee, opening a box with an engagement ring inside - the one I loved at the jewelry store - and Greg says to me:
"We've had some amazing times together and I would like you to be with me for the rest of our adventures in life. Will you marry me?"
All of this was done in front of my family; my brother, Mom, Amelia, and Van!!!
I was so speechless that all I could do was nod!
And, I was so excited I took the ring out of the box and put it on myself!
My Mom was crying, I was tearing up and even Van, my step-dad, had a few tears running down his cheek!!
I was so caught up in the moment that I didn't see the note that Greg wrote inside the box where the battery was. If you know Greg, then you know he's into video games, especially Mario Bros. and the note is in reference to Mario rescuing the Princess from the castle; so it would have said (if we were in a Mario game) "Sorry Mario, your Princess is in another castle", but instead it said "Sorry Princess, your ring is in another box"
